This is when you evaluate a product or a service by testing it with representative users. Now, it's important that the selected users represent the type of potential users or group of users that protect or service will be geared toward, but should not hav been involved the conception of theproduct or service. There are questions that need to be answered during the selection of the participants such as:

  • how many of them are needed?
  • Screening the participants
  • Costs of Recruitment
    Most likely there will be fee associated with this process to guaranty the commitment of participants.

Interface capturing of the week

In week one, I have been experiencing with the "One Page" website design. I love the design and interface and I found them very useful as a great landing page to convey quick information to stackholders. I particulary love their good usage for presenting a single product or as a portofolio of works.
